The traditional cuisine in the plain descending to Ravenna till the Adriatic Sea was linked to the products of one's garden and farmyard. Even here homemade pasta reigned, but on the cutting board we once kneaded dry bread dough and parmesan for passatelli, too. A farm-yard chicken cooked in a saucepan is still a simple preparation food with a great effect among all the other typical dishes and, in this case of Russi, we recall the belecot, a dish between salami and fresh cotechino, which goes well with Canena.


The beauty of Ravenna goes back a long way. Symbol of the fusion between East and West, rich in precious mosaics, basilicas, baptisteries, it preserves eight wonders declared UNESCO sites: the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia and Mausoleum of Theodoric, the Basilica of Sant'Apollinare Nuovo and of Sant'Apollinare in Classe, the Ariani and Neoniano Baptisteries, the Chapel of Sant'Andrea and the Basilica of San Vitale. A wonderful archaeological site is the Domus dei Tappeti di Pietra (House of the Floor Mosaics).
